Nestled in the heart of beautiful Perthshire, yet only an hours drive from Scotland’s major cities, Comrie Croft Bike Trails are a new, compact and expanding set of dedicated trails with a little something for everyone. The trails are located on our private estate and have been hand dug by local volunteers, which gives them a surprisingly natural feel. Variety is key to our trails and what is at present a relatively short loop packs a fairly mighty punch. You’ll be sure to enjoy the challenges that Comrie Croft Bike Trails throw up, and soon be heading back round for more!
The trails are an expanding mix of existing forest roads and hand built, dedicated singletrack which combine to give you an exhilarating ride. They start and finish at Comrie Croft, a four star Independent Hostel, situated in the heart of rural Perthshire in the beautiful Strathearn Valley.
All the trails are graded red with some black sections, and at present measure around 6kms. We are in the process of adding more routes to give you an option round some of the more technical parts of the trail. Watch this space for more details, we’ll keep you updated as and when they happen.
Theres nothing worse than coming off of a tiring ride and having to squeeze out of a soggy pair of cycling shorts in the comfort of the front seat of your car, well ok there might be a few worse things, but we here at Comrie Croft Bike Trails appreciate that we all enjoy a few creature comforts after a hard day in the saddle.
With that in mind we aim to please with our facilities on offer. First off there’s Comrie Croft itself, a 70 bed, 4 star independent hostel, spread over two buildings and with great benefits for residents such as comfy couches, laundry facilities, a drying room, games room and of course beds! Please see the website www.comriecroft.com for full details. Also now open is our Eco-Campsite, with 24 pitches set amongst the picturesque lower woods of the estate. Both of these offer an excellent opportunity for an overnight stay to check out some of the other excellent natural trails the Strathearn area has to offer.
For those of you not stopping too long, you’ll still have the chance to take advantage of our shop, with juice and snacks, tea and coffee, ice cream and cakes, crisps….stop drooling, just get down here! We also have some basic bike spares in the shop, tubes, cable, brake blocks and other essentials to get you going again should you break down. We can carry out repairs on site, just pop into the shop and speak to a member of staff and we’ll do our best to get you back going again.
Don’t have your own bike? No problem, Comrie Croft Bikes has a fleet of high quality bikes available for hire on site, just park up, hire and you can be on the trail in minutes, see bike hire for details. On top of this we also have ample free parking, toilets, showers, Bike Wash, maps of other local trails, and of course the best views in Strathearn!
